So, what does a retail assistant do exactly? The duties and responsibilities can vary from shop to shop, but they generally follow the same idea. Your main task is helping customers find what they’re looking for and complete their purchases. You’ll also need to keep the shop tidy and organised, and ensure there is always enough stock on the shelves. 

What do you need in order to become a retail assistant? The job description is fairly light, as there aren’t many concrete requirements you need. The most important qualities to bring to the table are a friendly personality and a level head in stressful situations. Some skills are also helpful for retail assistant jobs, like good customer service and numeracy; they’re not essential though, and can often  be learned on the job. 

The great thing about jobs for retail assistants is that they come with very flexible working hours. Whatever kind of schedule you have, you can surely fit a retail assistant job around it. Part-time work is the most common, especially for students and young people. Your salary as a retail assistant will depend on the hours you work. For part-time work you’ll be paid hourly, around £9 to £13, but full-time employees can expect a yearly salary of roughly £25,000 to £30,000.
